This is it! Your prediction for Colorado v. Arizona (Saturday, 1:30 p.m., MT, Pac-12 Networks):
  • Arizona, despite its 17-game losing streak, has been competitive of late (CU has not). Wildcat players have circled this game as one which can end the losing streak ... and I'm afraid they are right. (42%, 58 Votes)
  • I think the coaches and players have been working on this game plan for two weeks, and will be able to handle the Wildcats. Buffs win with a strong rushing attack and good defense! (30%, 42 Votes)
  • It's a touchdown line, but I'm not sure the Buffs will cover. This will be a low-scoring game (with two poor offenses). I can see the Buffs winning a low-scoring nail-biter. Fingers crossed! (28%, 39 Votes)

USA Today releases information on coaches' salaries. Thoughts on the Pac-12 breakdown?
  • I'm surprised/disappointed/aghast that Karl Dorrell's buyout is $14.8 million. Here's guessing that even a 1-11 meltdown this year will not result in a new head coach at CU (60%, 116 Votes)
  • I'm surprised that David Shaw is the third-highest paid coach in the nation. I know he's untouchable, but I'm not sure that Stanford is getting its $9 million of value these days (22%, 43 Votes)
  • I'm surprised that Karl Dorrell is making more money than Washington's Jimmy Lake ... and I'm also thinking that Oregon State's Jonathan Smith is due for a raise (18%, 34 Votes)

CU men's basketball team picked to finish 6th in the Pac-12 for the 2021-22 season. Thoughts?
  • So, CU returns every player except for McKinley Wright, and has the best recruiting Class in the Pac-12 (11th nationally). If UCLA or Oregon had that roster, no way they would be picked sixth (48%, 104 Votes)
  • Sounds about right. Unlike football, a sixth-place team in basketball is still likely an NCAA tournament team. The Buffs might be a bubble team, but they should go dancing (30%, 66 Votes)
  • Umm ... It's not even mid-October, and we're not even halfway through football season. I know the football team is struggling, but I'm not going to worry about Boyle & Co. until December (22%, 48 Votes)

Other than USC, which of the following Pac-12 teams is most likely to have a new coach in 2022?
  • Arizona State ... If Herm Edwards is the head coach next season, I will lose all faith in the authority of the NCAA. Oh, wait a second ... (29%, 69 Votes)
  • Washington State ... Whether it's a lack of vaccination, or a lack of wins, Nick Rolovich might not make it out of Year Two in Pullman (29%, 68 Votes)
  • Washington ... The Jimmy Lake promotion isn't working as well as hoped. If the Huskies go south in the second half of the season, Washington could be looking for a new coach (25%, 58 Votes)
  • Oregon ... Mario Cristobal has ties to the SEC and Miami, and with the LSU and Miami jobs possibly being open, the Ducks might be facing Willie Taggart Part Two (17%, 39 Votes)
  • Utah ... Kyle Whittingham has to retire sometime, doesn't he? It's been a long run of success, but it's got to be coming to an end soon (0%, 2 Votes)

Karl Dorrell: "We are moving forward with the subtle changes that we did make ... No change in roles, from a play-calling standpoint". Thoughts?
  • Are you kidding? Does Dorrell want to play before an empty stadium? The Buffs have lost by three touchdowns or more for three straight games. "Subtle changes" ... to get us within two scores? Yuck (47%, 142 Votes)
  • I'm still in "wait and see" mode. The proof will be in the pudding. If these "subtle changes" make a difference, then he is vindicated. Hoping for the best ... but I have my doubts (42%, 126 Votes)
  • What would you expect? "We've pushed the panic button and made wholesale changes to try and save our jobs"? There is no free agent market for players or coaches, so you make do with what you have (11%, 34 Votes)
